the lookahead lyrics – the tragically hip

i go back to the water
when i get nowhere in the air
i thought you should know, it’s no worse
covering ground you’ve heard before

it’s a power of, power of, power of
power of free and easy
it’s a power of, power of, power of
power of free and easy

you weigh a snowflake
cause great trees to fall
descending
on perfect arms
like jeff beck
to give me the lookahead

i go back to the brusque nurse
her heart a bad cake in a melting box
i thought you should know, it’s no worse
her blood is still clear and sanguineous

it’s a power of, power of, power of
power of free and easy
it’s a power of, power of, power of
power of free and easy

you weigh a snowflake
the glamour of the sky
descending
past perfect eyes
and hearts leapt
to give me the lookahead
come on, honey
just give me that lookahead
